the past five years. in contrast in a speech in california in may, mitt romney said, quote, the president doesn't understand when you invest like that in one solar energy company it makes it harder for solar technology generally because the other entrepreneurs in the solar field suddenly lost their opportunity to get capital. who wants to put money into a solar company when the government put half a billion dollars into one of its choice. excellent question. i wrote this book because we are not just spending half a billion dollars. we are spending $12 billion a year to make electricity more expensive rather than cheaper. that is $6 billion in tax breaks and $6 billion in direct expenditures. the green jobs that makes no sense and has low-income americans, we brainwash our children to think that green is good and fink uncritically about green products and green jobs and yet we can't even define what a green job is. let's start with a green jobs. the bureau of labor statistics has five definitions of the 3.1 million green jobs that it has counted. namely the energy from renewable sources, e
. california voters face a tough choice at the poll today. raise taxes or get hit with massive budget cuts. it's an issue that would have nationwide ramifications. but first, here's a look at what's happening in the world and what we have been covering here on "cbs this morning." >> after all the rallies, after the millions of dollars of ads, it all comes down to you. >> this is the day when voters choose the next president of the united states. >> early voting has really been key to the obama campaign strategy. they are leading in the early vote in almost every battleground state. >> one day away from a fresh start. one day away from the first day of a new beginning. >> i talked to a top campaign ad last night. he said romney was confident and that they're feeling good. >> the election may be already over, actually, and we don't know it. >> it's going to be a narrow race. we're even or ahead in nearly every one of these battleground states. >> you know the governor like i do, he's not someone to sit around until the job is done. >> the nor'easter is sure to make life harder for sandy's victim
-span. next is felix from california. caller: good morning. i mean democratic voter. -- i am an independent voter. what i heard from joe biden today is the fact that the problem we have always had is that the problems were caused by a republican. mitt romney -- host: thanks for the call. good afternoon caroline. caller: i am proud to be what i am. host: go ahead with your thoughts on this election. caller: my thought right now is joe biden >> tomorrow night watch election results from the presidential race as well as house, senate and governors contest across the country. we'll have coverage of president obama in chicago and the mitt romney in boston. victory and concession speeche speeches,. >> we are engaged in the process and been working first in with fema, to make an overall assessment, that 25, up to 25% of those cell towers were disabled during this process. what the fcc does and will continue to do is to work with these entities, to assess the situation on the ground and to more so use this information to see where we can do adequate for. >> commissioner mignon clyburn on issues fac
to california. her family would like to go back. she might still around again because -- she raised $215 million. she is the house's biggest fund- raiser. >> we will end up with a more polarized congress. steny hoyer is more moderate. he is an institutional -- has been around for decades and represents a lot of the new democrats. the big question will be, will party, a caucus dominated by liberals and i would say democrats are much more liberal than your average democrat around the country. will they tolerate steny hoyer who they do not see as one of their own? they see him as a compromiser. >> the white house has been ignoring -- democrats have been an afterthought. if they had a leader, there would have more muscle. >> one thing that i find interesting to watch is when you can step back and look at the bigger picture, you have a house that is not budging and testing republican. which means that how frustrated that american people are about the non action, about the tea party. this means that i think barack obama should be on the losing end of this campaign because the american people want a ch
yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the chair recognizes the gentlewoman from california, ms. woolsey, for five minutes. ms. woolsey: thank you, mr. speaker. mr. speaker, it's the time of year when families reunite and renew their very close connections, connections that are actually in most instances the most precious parts of our lives. this thanksgiving i know all of us were grateful for the company of those we love the most. but more than 2,000 american families sat at tables where there was one less serving of the thanksgiving meal just a week ago. those families lost a loved one in the deadly war in afghanistan. now more than 11 years long and a tragically reckless policy. i'm personally grateful for the service of all of our afghanistan veterans and for their sacrifice and for the sacrifice of our military families. but sometimes i don't know how we as a congress and a nation can look them right straight in the face after everything we've put them through. the benefits of this war don't come close to justifying the devastating human cost. not just fatalities but disfiguring wou
me take you into it. this morning, by far the worst weather all through california. i just read something that at some of the highest elevations in the mountains in california could get up to 100 inches of snow. 100 inches of snow over the next three to four days. crazy. it's raining hard this morning in san francisco to sacramento. san francisco, it's going to be a rainy three days. another big storm coming in saturday afternoon, saturday night. it's going to rain through sunday. you get a break monday, then another storm on tuesday. we have a lot of flooding concerns in the rivers in california in the days ahead. let me take you through the forecast as we go at it. this huge storm in the west, it's not going to move across the country. it's just going to stall out. if you're anywhere from denver to the east coast, don't expect a lot of wet weather this weekend. it should mostly be dry. and notice the temperatures. they're warming up in the middle of the country, and that will head east as we go throughout the weekend. so your friday forecast, really no airport concerns out the
of the regulars of electricity like california and new york have figured out how to make it attractive to energy providers, electricity providers to provide more efficiency to the ed vintage of the consumer by to reducing rates so there are many things we would be able to agree on and advance the cause of the carbonizing the economy. >> the diversity of fuel sources as well as efficiency travel parallel to the interest of the environmental policy in my judgment. >> we did, the congress did agree on the standards and the administration has continued to work in the industry to move those numbers up even more so there is a classic example of how we did something. >> i wondered if the recommendations you are making i understand that you are trying to bring together all these agencies across the executive branch whether they are of the legislative branch is a very much partner in this. how do your recommendations bring the congressional leaders and to coordinate with them as well as the executive branch leadership? >> we will recommend that this would be institutionalized or created also legislativel
economy. no state income tax. look at california. there lost 350,000 people to texas alone. texas is growing. california is a disaster. host: i will give you a chance to jump in. guest: it is difficult to compare. is great to hear somebody from our own area doing well down in texas. i appreciate his call. i think it is difficult to try to make a comparison -- comparison between the oral industry, versus the auto industry. i think it is a difficult comparison. but the auto restructuring package has worked. and it is benefiting hubbard, ohio. and the position on chinese steel that the president has taken that has benefited people in that area of -- i would take issue with the lack of him making the argument that there's a lack of a federal resources about of gone into taxes. nasa has made huge investments into texas. many businesses and texas' benefit from investments in the united states military. throughout the entire state of texas. i think if you look at many of the universities in texas, they get a vote load of money from the research and development money that comes from nih,
jersey as cokie pointed out but also places like california which are states that he would have won anyway but there was so much organic enthusiasm for barack obama in 2008 that he won -- that a lot of people turned out even in deep blue states where their votes, of course, didn't count, they turned out in mass numbers. the president's people knee this yearhat's not going to happen. so in terms of the overall national popular vote, if you think about red states and blue states where neither campaign is trying to turn out the vote, the blue states like california and new york for various reasons the president's numbers won't be anywhere near as strong as they were in 2008 whereas in the deep red state there is's so much antipathy towards the president that people will turn out in those states even though they are deep red states. they'll turn out the cast a symbolic vote against barack obama. so that's one thing that skews the popular vote by conceivably on election day towards romney more than people are necessarily expecting >> i think that's absolutely right. the red states are re
. >> by the way, california is where we are head audio california is almost, folks, a microcosm of where the country is headed. >> i mean if they are balkanized out there, it's a bunch of different states. the rich live in a few places and the rest of the state is dying. it's a shame, actually. >> in the future, it would be nice -- it would be nice if, i think -- if people felt like the party wasn't something that wasn't for them. i think the republican party has in the past been a brilliant party, when you bring up lincoln, that's a fantastic thing. but you have to keep in mind that we have evolved since then and the feel and look of america is changing and we all have to change -- we all have to do it. >> you have 72% of the country, right now, they are voting, they are white. the paik of their voting. it won't get much better than that. how are you going to reach out to the other groups of americans who are not part of that? >> republicans don't seem to want to get in touch with it at all. >> you mention benghazi, the president is going to be facing several hearings coming up in the h
americans will find that painful. here is to engage with the mouse. take a look at this. california from the average tax deduction for people who do file the itemized form are $33,901. new york, washington dc, connecticut, new jersey. really getting hit hard as well. they have the biggest tax deductions. i know some folks think that if you remove those tax credits and deductions, then we lose the progressivity of the tax code. in other words, they say it would become even more unfair. even after credit to deduction, the taxes of them is still progressive. check out this chart. there is no doubt that american households will get hurt in january, especially small investors. take a look at this, 30,000 to 50,000, he will take a tax hit here. 23% is how much they will go up. we have to figure out the consequences of the fiscal cliff. oil, which is a $2 per barrel, how the ongoing violence in israel and the gaza strip is impacting you and your money. stay with us [ abdul-rashid ] i've been working since i was about 16. you know, one job or the other. the moment i could access the retirement p
of mutual aid to bring in, more utility crews from surrounding areas as far south and west as california, those cruz becher drive in and get their relatively fast have driven in. but we still have crews on the west coast that have 3-5 days transit time. there is also concerned that with the fire season, if they could not get back for their fire season was that gets going, that they would not be able to send their resources. there is also aircraft. there are teams and equipment that will be airlifted from california, west coast teams to support this response. but also, understand that teams were already moving well before sandy hit. teams have been called from the midwest and south. if it makes sense that they can drive there faster than flying, then they are driving in. for those that need to, they're flying in this afternoon. >> i am wondering how the contacting process is going. some contracts are already in place. will there be proposals for other types of aid? does fema have enough money with the $3.6 billion? especially when they are only authorized for $3.8 billion. >> yes, we will
on in the middle east this week. and bradley is calling us from sacramento california. good morning bradley. are you with us? you're on the "bill press show." >> caller: yes, i'm here. >> john: welcome. thanks for holding. >> caller: that's okay. i would love to be talking about the economy, trickle down. >> john: it is your floor. >> caller: about israel, i think the problem is that israel feels so confident because america is always there to back them up with the full might and force of the american military. and i really think if we threatened or said we wouldn't be there for them if they keep on bullying and killing really palestinian people, that maybe they would back off a bit. at least stop the killing. i'm not sure that would stop everything. >> john: you're the second caller in a row to say the u.s. should cut israel loose economically. don't you think that might have dire economic and political consequences? >> i don't think we would actually have to go through with it. if we told them okay, we're seriously going to
to other races in the country where they could target rick hubble -- republicans. california there have been two factors, which was to turn the congressional map on its head. we are almost able to ignore california even though it is the biggest day, and maybe watch one or two seats. now we're watching a dozen seats to see which party takes control. when it comes to the senate, if you look at the northern part of the country, if you look at montana, north dakota, indiana, and wisconsin, all four of those races are in our categories, and republicans need to win all four of them if they have any hope of getting the majority. in each one of those that they lose, the chance the republicans will gain back control decreases for the perry >> will there be anything that surprise you? our job is toj avoid as many surprises as process. in hopes of we will avoid a surprise, but i would be surprised if there is not a surprise, particularly on the house side. the presidential battleground, i think the senate battle ground, states we know come on the house side, but almost expect there to be a surpris
but actually you can't tell the total number of votes in the nation until california gets around to doing it. you know, some states count them very clean and don't seem to have any problem. >> megyn: how about virginia? is that true of virginia. >> virginia, that has been true. when george allen was defeated for senator six years ago by 6,000 or 7,000 votes, virginia went right down, you know, they went back over that, i believe there was recount or reexpectation of the vote, less than 100 votes changed. it was pretty straightforward. new hampshire is famous for doing that well, too and so forth. other states have had bigger problems. >> bret: we should point out if we put that back up. that was the national popular vote total. that will pop up throughout the night as well. you will see the actual vote total through the night. these are all the states throughout the nation and there you see it as it continues to tick up and for us, after the iowa caucuses, the difference was added, 61256 right now so i don't have to pull out the calculator. >> megyn: didn't you get yelled at by math teacher
of the states that were scared, were not hard hit or some states as far away as california, they have pledged to get the equipment and cruise here into new jersey and new york and connecticut as quickly as possible. one of the things we have been able to do, to give you a sense of how this is an all hands on deck approach, we are able to and c-130's, military transport planes, to move assets and personnel to speed up the process of getting power as soon as possible. our first party is water filtration plants and other critical infrastructure in the state. for that, we have to move some generators, and we have a ship that can help to move assets around the state as well. we are going to be working with governor christie's office and local officials to identify what are those critical infrastructures, how we can get what is needed as quickly as possible. a couple other things we are concerned about. as power starts coming back on, we want to make sure people can get to work. there are a lot of folks in jersey who work in new york, in the city, and other places where transportation may be hobble
a phone call. california democrats line good evening. caller: i'm calling to say that i'm voting for obama because he has been through a whole lot for the first four years. he's trying to straighten out what the republicans has messed up. and i go with obama. host: host: thanks for call. gilbert is a long time reporter for the milwaukee tribbune. we checked in with him what he will be checking out on election night. guest: i think the turn out will be sky high. i'm going to be interested to see what the interplay is between those races or whether they're cooky cutter images because of how polarized these elections have become or whether we get an election that is much more like 2,000 and 2004 in wisconsin at the top of the ticket which was decided by less than half a percentage noint both cases or whether wisconsin is better for democrats than their national numbers which has happened on occasion. so wisconsin swings back and forth between those two patterns and those are things i'll be interested in watching on election night. host: our next call is from wisconsin on the republican line.
